It may be too late to snag a seat at the upcoming McDougall Advanced Study Weekend, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a ringside cyber-seat at the long-anticipated great debate between these 2 plant-based diet heavyweights: Should You Eat Vegetables (Dr. Fuhrman) or  Starch (Dr. McDougall)?  Simply sign up for the internet broadcast.

Not quite sure on the debate title, as of course neither Fuhrman nor McDougall think you should eat ONLY vegetables or ONLY starches.  But it makes for an irresistible discussion, don’t you think?

And what a way to preface the article just about to publish:  My McDougall Diet Failure.  Intrigued?  Stay tuned!

Here are all the details as well as the full lineup of presenters for the Advanced Nutrition Study Weekend, with a highlight and tease about the debate:
